Trio Of Bouts Added To UFC Fight Night 101 In Australia


Three new fights have been added to the upcoming UFC Fight Night 101 card, including a flyweight contest between Ben Nguyen and Geane Herrera.

The other two bouts will take place in the lightweight ranks, as Yusuke Kasuya meets Alex Volkanovski and Damien Brown tangles with Jon Tuck.

Nguyen (16-6) has won two of his three UFC fights, while Herrera (9-2) has dropped two of his three. Tuck (9-3) owns an even 3-3 mark inside the Octagon, while Brown (16-9) is 1-1.

Kasuya (9-2) dropped his only UFC fight to date and will be welcoming Volkanovski (13-1) to the promotion. Both fighters were expected to compete this coming Saturday – against different opponents – at the now cancelled UFC Fight Night 97 event.

UFC Fight Night 101 takes place November 26 from the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia and features Luke Rockhold vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
